This is a complete parametric version of pourable mendel parts.
All Mendel parts are openscad models now. Some of them where fortunately already made by Tim Schmidt (http://github.com/timschmidt/parameterized-mendel).
All others where completly recreated in openscad after the original stls. This allows to make stls with adapted hole sizes, so they have the correct size when printed on your 3d printer.
No drilling needed.
Some parts where changed to make them easier pourable, those models differ from the original mendel parts in appearance but not in functionallity.
The modified parts are:
z-leadscrew base and z-motor-mount: The long horzontal holes were splitted like in our prusa counterparts.
y-bearing-360: The cavity had to be opened to make it pourable.
x-barclamp_m3: The parts has been made flat on one side to allow pouring.
Some molds look really complicated, but they are pourable without any problem and have already lasted many casts.
The timing belt pulley was taken and modified from Erik de Bruijns design.
The pulley for the x- and y-axis is a modified form of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3104 with 3 set screw holes to make a balanced fit.
Als before we cast this set with all temperature critical parts tempered to withstand 100Â° ambient temperature.
